Best breakfast in town always hot, plentiful and tasty. Creamy mushroom toast is a must. Service can be a little slow things like tea & toast are always forgotten about. Very child friendly toys & colours to keep them busy.

A real treat! We came here via a recommendation from the staff at the Sheraton Hotel. On a sunny day we had wonderful coffee and delicious warm cake while gazing over the Shannon river. This spot is humble, but it delivers a punch.

I was brought for lunch here by friends and really enjoyed the food I had a chicken salad (unsure of the name) and it was delicious and so filling. The staff were so friendly and helpful answering questions we had about the specials and how spicy different dishes were. My friend recommended the brown bread as we were leaving and... More

I'd highly recommend Beans & Leaves to everyone. The food is always top quality and value for money. Not to forget the great staff that go above and beyond making you always feeling welcome each time you visit. There's not many cafes around you would find of this quality.

"Simple Ingredients...Magical Foods"Steven & Martina's thinking is straightforward.Don’t mess with fantastic ingredients, keep it simple!Bring out the best in them and serve in delicious sandwiches, salads, hot meals & desserts all made on the premises & All for reasonable prices to have here or to take home. And, judging by the deli’s popularity, it’s a recipe that works.Happy Cooking,Steven & Martina.
